1. I can not imagine the users, children and teens, have full informed consent.

2. I feel dirty reading this article. No app (maybe antivirus) should install a root cert. This is terrible invasion of privacy and misuse of user trust.

3. No, just no.

Important→ Someone hacked the official site of #PHP PEAR and replaced package manager (go-pear.phar) with a "tainted version"
